The tale of Tan Jacobs' path to the electric chair is quite a shocker. Even though it was written for him at birth…

"Guilty as Charged" was recorded live on May 27th, 2018\. It was part of our show, **The Electric Chair**.

We at Fireside Mystery Theatre present these stories without prejudice or agenda. Our tales of the electric chair are not meant to condemn nor condone. Rather, they are meant as an expression of our persistent exploration of the dark and unsettling.
